OFFICIAL: Red Bull chief refutes Perez’s contract assertion…

Red Bull Racing has yet to finalize their driver lineup for next year, with Sergio Perez in the final year of his contract. While Perez is performing strongly and is a top contender for retention, other drivers are also being considered.

Carlos Sainz is available after Ferrari’s decision to replace him with Lewis Hamilton, and Yuki Tsunoda has shown promise. Daniel Ricciardo has expressed interest in returning to Red Bull, and there are other drivers on the market as well.

Perez expects decisions to be made quickly, with his future likely to be clarified in the coming weeks. Despite his desire for a swift announcement, Red Bull isn’t feeling rushed. Team principal Christian Horner emphasized their contentment with the current lineup and the need to maintain Perez’s consistency.

While Perez seems favored due to his recent performances, Sainz has also shown his prowess by defeating Red Bull in previous races. Speculation links Sainz to both Red Bull and Audi, especially with Audi’s impending entry into the championship.

Horner praised Perez’s improvement since 2023, noting his diligent offseason work and adjusted approach to race weekends. Perez’s dedication and improved performance have aligned well with his teammate, resulting in competitive showings this season.
